Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
So you have to understand going into this property that your not going to get any sleep unless you use your ear plugs. People don’t put their phone on vibrate and it can be quite noisy but the price is great, the neighborhood is cool and it’s got a cool vibe you just have to realize that it’s a shared space essentially.

Much Better than What I Expected
It was a unique experience staying in this place. The place was ideally located for those who would like to experience what New York City had to offer. The facilities were artistically as well as practically designed with attractive lobby reception area where the guests could mingle. Staff were kind, courteous and helpful and professional. Overall I enjoyed staying here and would warmly recommend to others.
